Dr. O'Callaghan's Awakened: Meetings with Indian Saints is a humorous, travel-filled adventure. It tells of a female psychologist's spiritual quest and of challenges faced at an ashram in India where a strict guru works with ruthless efficiency to annihilate her ego. Uninvited monkeys, insects, and filth provide real- life lessons in rising above the senses. Her book attests to her spiritual adventurousness, for not only does she visit the four featured saints in the U.S., she has done an initiation by fire, so to speak, via her retreat at Swamiji's ashram in India. "Michael O'Callaghan has written one of the funniest books I have ever read. But she has done more than that. The story of her travels to India in search of enlightrenment is unexpectedly moving and profoundly touching. O'Callaghan, a budding boddhisattva, divests herself of possessions and passions in her quest for perfection, but stubbornly hangs on to her sense of humor. I loved this book." -- Richard Dorment, Art Critic, Daily Telegraph, London.
Dr. O'Callaghan has been practicing psychology for twenty years. She has a life-long interest in meditation and total brain development.
